    All registry registry defragmenters mostly do the same, unlike HDD defragmenters, they just remove free space, so I think, that it does not really matter, which one you are going to use, using good registry cleaner, which will free more space, but cause no problems, is more questionable. You can simply try them like: use one, then try to use the other, when it find nothing, then it does the same. By the way, another one, working in Vista as well, is Auslogics Registry Defrag.

    Unfortuneatly, Auslogics Registry Defrag is for Windows 2K/XP/2003/Vista only. He was looking for 9x/Me...

    Try NTREGOPT. Probably the best around. You can also download ERUNT together with NTREGOPT. ERUNT is the best if you want to restore the
    registry. You can use it from the recovery console as well. For details
    best go to the website: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/ ;)

    Hi Ocky,

    NTREGOPT is not a Registry defrag, it removes empty space/slack in the registry & returns the bytes back to general use.

    Take Care

    just used registrydefrag from tuneup utilities, after analysing the registry it came up with message "registry is already optimised,no need for defrag".there seem some defragging done before,and sure it was NTREGOPT that i used a few hours before Tuneup Utilities, so NTREGOPT among other things does defragging as Ocky said.

    From the NTREGOPT web site:

    http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/ntregopt.txt

    Note that the program does NOT change the contents of the registry in
    any way, nor does it physically defrag the registry files on the drive
    (as the PageDefrag program from SysInternals does). The optimization
    done by NTREGOPT is simply compacting the registry hives to the
    minimum size possible.

    Hello Bethrezen,
    One can restart in DOS mode and run scanreg. Never needed anything else for the w9x machines.
    scanreg /optimize /fix
